The Emperor is enraged. Primarch Magnus the Red of the Thousand Sons Legion has made a terrible mistake that endangers the very safety of Terra. With no other choice, the Emperor charges Leman Russ, Primarch of the Space Wolves, with the apprehension of his brother from the Thousand Sons' home world of Prospero. This planet of sorcerers will not be easy to overcome, but Russ and his Space Wolves are not easily deterred. With wrath in his heart, Russ is determined to bring Magnus to justice and bring about the fall of Prospero.
This an thousand sons paint opposing images of the space wolves/ thousand suns. It was painful to read at times.
Dan Abnett has a way of over explaining and using sooooo many metaphors that the initial intention is completely lost.
I got 3 whole chapters in before his writing style became utterly unbearable. Between the jumping back and forth from past and current as if they were happening simultaneously and all the superfluous content, I just couldn’t even follow what was happening. Reading this (and really all Dan Abnett books) is like reading the Silmarillion.
The writing here is as if Dan Abnett is a school child trying to stretch his essay to fulfill the minimum word requirement.
Over explanation and paragraphs worth of metaphors to show the reader the smallest of details completely slows and bores the reading.
This was terrible waste of money and shame on Black Library for continuing to pay Dan Abnett to write this garbage.
it was ok, if your actually looking for conflict over prospero, the final 30 pages or so are about all you’ll get. the characters are interesting, but the wording and even most of the wolves get repetitive and bland over time
